Living in a home with poor ventilation is more than uncomfortable. Dust mites, pet dander, aerosol gases — stuffy air holds a host of contaminants that are hazardous to your health. How dangerous is the problem? The air inside the average Hanover, PA home is more polluted than outdoor air. Here’s how a whole-home ventilator lets you breathe fresher, cleaner air.
How Do Whole-Home Ventilators Work?
The best whole-house ventilation systems bring fresh air indoors while at the same time expelling stale air outside. So-called energy recovery ventilators are the most efficient option. They can salvage up to up to 80% of the energy in the outgoing air to precondition the incoming air.
Energy recovery ventilators can often share the ductwork in your existing HVAC systems for an even more efficient operation. They’re a particularly cost-effective option in regions like Northern Maryland and South-Central Pennsylvania that experience extreme summer and winter temperatures.
Enhance Your Health and Comfort
Introducing fresh air and expelling airborne pollutants outdoors, a whole-home ventilator makes your home a healthier place to inhabit. Proper ventilation makes it more comfortable too. In every season, energy recovery ventilators help keep humidity levels balanced. They also allow your HVAC systems to work more efficiently, so you feel cooler during the summer and warmer all winter.
A whole-home ventilator improves HVAC system efficiency, lowering your lower heating and cooling costs. Energy recovery models offer the greatest savings. When outdoor temperatures plummet, they transfer heat from the exiting air to help warm the supply air. In the summer, the exiting cool air helps chill the incoming air, so you pay less for air conditioning.
